Quote/s of the Day – 24 June – The Solemnity of the Nativity of St John the Baptist
“ And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary,
the baby leaped in her womb.
And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit …
“For behold, when the sound
of your greeting came to my ears,
the baby in my womb leaped for joy.”
“What, then, will this child be?
For surely the hand of the Lord is with him.”
“At my birth,
I took away my mother’s barrenness
and while still an infant,
I healed my father’s dumbness,
for You gave me in childhood,
the gift of working miracles.”
St Gregory the Illuminator (c 213-270)
Homily on the holy Incarnation, 4
“John is a voice for a time
but Christ is the eternal Word,
from the beginning.”
St Augustine (354-430)

"For the Saints are sent to us by God
as so many sermons.
We do not use them, it is they who move us
and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.”
